Phenomenal and proactive professional with a dynamic command of California Law. Ms. Yum was my attorney during a very difficult period of my life that spanned more than 8 months. My entire life was on the line; 17 years of honorable service to this country could have been washed away due to false allegations…. Ms. Yum became entrenched from day one and my fight immediately became “her” fight. Extremely courteous and affable; I never felt judged or discomfited in her presence. Ms. Yum ensured that I thoroughly understood the law and how it related to my particular situation. All emails, phone calls and every other “off the wall” requests that could be expected from an individual with his freedom on the line were answered with the utmost expediency and efficiency. I was frequently updated with status changes as it pertained to my case. Throughout the trial, Ms. Yum exhibited mastery of the intricacies of the law. She meticulously dismantled the prosecution theory and successfully exposed the ill intent of prosecution witnesses. Her closing argument was aggressive, relevant, poignant and undoubtedly truthful; an exemplary work of art. In the end, I was exonerated of all charges.
Ms. Yum is simply the best!! I emphatically recommend her to anyone in need of legal representation. No matter what your current situation…..You will not regret utilizing the services of Ms. Anna Yum.

Retain the services of Anna Yum! Anna Yum is the epitome of excellence. From the first telephone conversation, I knew I had found a defender who could represent and protect me. She was extremely professional, courteous and resourceful. In our first meeting, she was sympathetic to my situation but also very pragmatic in handling the details. She diligently took notes and never expressed any judgmental attitude or made me feel uncomfortable in any way. In fact, she has a wonderful calming effect and I always felt better after talking with her. She explained all the legal details in a very understandable way and she made me aware of all the choices and possibilities that awaited me. The final results of my case were far and beyond the best possible scenario and I know that without Anna Yum, I would have a very different outcome today. Thank you so much Anna! If you are looking for a lawyer, you can stop your search, Anna Yum is the BEST!!!

Anna was always willing to come to me and let me pay her in instalments. At the time I my car was impounded and my finances were a mess. She not only kept me out of prison when I was facing up to 8 years, but talked with my mom countless times on the phone free of charge. She really cares about her clients and goes the extra mile. Infact she drove several miles out to Santee to bring me glasses when I couldn't see. She was great about giving me copies of my reports and informing me of all my options. I really owe my life to her, because if she hadn't helped me I wouldn't be where I am today. Thanks Anna!

I've worked with numerous attorneys over the years and have NEVER found an attorney as knowledgable and as accessible as Anna. So many attorneys it seems to take an act of Congress to get ahold of them, but not an issue at all with Anna! I contacted her office on a Sunday and left a message only for her to call me back within 10 minutes from her cell phone while out running errands! Really?! Amazing! They don't make attorneys like her anymore unfortunately! While speaking to her I could tell immediately she was extremely knowledgable in her field, and I knew that because I'm very familiar with my case and laws which pertain to it. She is no doubt on the ball and an attorney like no other. She couldn't take my case because it was a very specific matter which I totally understand, but she went above and beyond to give me info for another attorney to contact. Even better... She didn't give me the number for a private attorney just so she could still get paid a referral fee from that attorney like most attorneys do. She gave me a number to a public agency who could help me out at NO COST! Awesome! Thanks so much Anna! Should I ever need an attorney in the future I'm coming to YOU!

I was charged with my 3rd DUI in 10 years and needed to find the best criminal defense attorney in San Diego. As a business owner, third year law student, and military veteran, I spent hours researching criminal defense attorneys in San Diego. When I spoke to Anna Yum, I knew she was the attorney for me.
Anna Yum is extremely smart, very well-spoken, and knows criminal law as well as anyone. Anna is also very well respected in the legal community, and respected by judges and prosecutors. Anna aggressively defended me and worked hard to get the possible result in my case. I can’t thank her enough. I would absolutely recommend Anna to my friends and family and to anyone who needs a criminal defense attorney. I honestly believe you won’t find a better criminal defense attorney in San Diego.

I have used Anna in the past and from working with her in the past I knew I had a lawyer I can count on. She never rushes anything and she will take as long as it takes for you to get the best outcome possible. From our first conversation on the phone, she was very friendly and concerned about my me, that it made me feel certain that she would get the job done. I recently went to Anna for the second time because I got in a DUI and Hit and Run. During this process she was very professional and she always keeps me up to date with my case. She did everything she could until she knew I got the best outcome. Anna did everything she could to make me comfortable and made me understand that she has everything under control. Every time I went to her office to sit down and talk with her she knew exactly what was next in my case and never left me in the dark. She is very knowledgeable about the law system and understands what to do next. With my case, she worked with me every step of the way and because of that you have this connection with Anna that you don't get with other lawyers. With my recent DUI and Hit and Run case, she brought that down to a WET RECKLESS! She knows what she's doing and is very friendly and approachable. I highly recommend Anna Yum and if I ever get in trouble again she is the first person I'm calling.
Thank you Anna, for the past 7 months you were patient and helped me so much during this DUI case. I knew every question I asked you, you had the answer. You don't understand how much you helped me and so many others! Again thank you so so much.

I did lots of research in seeking for legal advice. Based on my research, I decided to hire Anna. What a decision! Anna is simply the best in this field. I can't say enough about all aspects of her services. She and her team are fantastic. They get back to you when you send them an email or leave them a voice mail. Anna truly cares about her clients and will do whatever it takes to get the best outcome for her clients. It's been a great experience working with Anna. I can write a book here but just trust me, hire Anna!
